Students who attend the Summer term at Imperial Valley College may qualify for Financial Aid to help pay for college costs. In order to be considered for both the Federal Pell Grant and the California College Promise Grant (CCPG), you must complete and submit your 2020-21 FAFSA by June 30, 2021, if you have not done so already for the academic year.
California College Promise Grant (CCPG)
If you have not already applied for the 2020-21 CCPG you have two (2) methods of establishing eligibility:
1. Must submit and complete the 2020-21 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by June 30, 2021, or
2. Must submit and complete a California College Promise Grant (CCPG) application by July 30, 2021.
Please remember the CCPG will only pay enrollment fees for California residents and AB 540 eligible students who qualify. Other fees that apply for the term, such as Health Services Fees, Student Representation Fee, Parking Fees, Lab, and Materials Fee will be the responsibility of the student.
Summer Pell Grant
Pell Grant-eligible students can receive up to 150% of their scheduled Pell Grant award each year.
If you enrolled full-time (12+ units) and received the full-time Pell Grant award for Fall 2020 and Spring 2021, you must enroll at least half-time (6+ units) in summer classes to receive a summer Pell Grant.
If you enrolled part-time Fall 2020 or Spring 2021, there is no minimum unit requirement to receive a summer Pell Grant (unless required by your EFC). You can use the remainder of your annual Pell Grant amount during summer with no minimum unit requirement.
Your Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) as determined by the U.S. Dept. of Education and your enrollment status for the Summer term will determine your summer award. Summer awards will be posted after registration.
Enrollment status is determined by the number of enrolled units:
|3/4-time||9 (max for Summer)|
|1/2-time||6 to 8.5|
|Less than 1/2-time||.5 to 5.5|
Summer Students Success Completion Grant (SSCG)
If funds are available, students who received less than $4000 in SSCG during Fall/Spring aid periods may qualify for additional SSCG if they reached cumulative 30 units for the entire aid year including Summer units.
